    No doubt. The FAA has to be feeling the pressure, from all sides. If I were them, Iíd be erring on the side of extreme caution.

      Boeing should be saying we have no reason to think there is anything wrong with the plane, if its flown correctly, but until we know this for certain, its best to park them.

        Canada should follow the lead of other countries and ground this plane until it's proven safe.

          350 Max 8s, 2 crashed. 1/175 loss has to be about the worst rate since the Comet. Would not fly in one until it's fixed for sure.

            The wife just told me that France and Britain have banned it from flying in their airspace. She watches the BBC news on her tablet.

              If you were flying on one this week would you get on or cancel your flight ?

                Pulling them from service or playing the percentages of 3 going down in flames

                Looks like they've decided to play the percentages and lives,that in this day and age of engineering and tech, 3 going down is impossible

                Edit: virtually impossible

                    It would be a really tough call right now.

                      Both westjet and Air Canada operate the 737 Maxís. Iím a bit surprised we havenít followed suit.

                      The stress level at Boeing must be off the charts at the moment trying to determine if thereís more than coincidence here.

                        By not pulling them from service Boeing has made the presumption

                        Big gamble....imo

                          Agreed. Your 1/175 stat is really scary.

                          I have seven flights this week, fortunately none are on 737 Maxís.

                            Daughter and husband just did the Vancouver - Kona run on a Max8 last night, we did the same a few weeks ago. Nice new plane. Will be going home on the same in a few weeks. Not concerned. We are probably in greater danger of being killed by an earthquake/tsunami right now. I think I will have another mai tai now.

                              Or they are making a decision based on the facts they know and not idle internet speculation?

                                The message I get is more like don't fly on an Ethiopian airline, than avoid a plane that AC, WJ, AA, Boeing and the civil aviation authorities of Canada and the USA say is safe.
